A clinical breast exam is performed by a healthcare professional who is trained to recognize many different types of abnormalities and warning signs. Our Direct Primary Care doctor in Raleigh will perform this in-office exam as a part of your annual exam, or separately if you or your physician believe you may be at increased risk.
Note: Your breast self-exam is something very important and every woman should have a healthy habit of doing it once a month at home.
Clinical Breast exams performed at our primary care clinic are an extremely crucial part of early detection. Although most lumps can be discovered through breast self-exams, an experienced professional may notice a suspicious place that fails to register as a warning in the patient’s mind.
